Raise Your Hand
This spring, Nebraska 4-H is asking alumni to raise their hands! We believe that every child deserves the chance to succeed. If you're a 4-H alumni or know someone who is, we're asking for your help in spreading the word. Together we can help 4-H provide the hands-on learning that empower kids across America with the skills to hands what life throws at them.
- Raise Your Hand: Go to http://4-h.org/raise-your-hand/ to show your pride as a 4-H alumni.
- Compete for Nebraska: Raising your hand is a vote towards a $20,000, $10,000, or $5,000 award for the states with the most alumni hands raised. In Nebraska, this award will be used to reach more youth through science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs.
- Pay it Forward: Tweet, post, and share your #4HGrown and #NE4H experience or support and tag fellow alumni asking them to raise their hands for their state at http://4-h.org/raise-your-hand/.
Help kids learn responsibility, compassion, respect, and the value of hard work by supporting 4-H. Together we can grow the next generation of true leaders.
True Leaders in Service
Every day, 4-H'ers across the nation pledge their hands to larger service. And every day, 4-H'ers are rolling up their sleeves and putting their pledge into action – leading positive change that empowers their peers and their communities. This April, 4-H is launching an annual True Leaders in Service initiative in honor of National Volunteer Appreciation Month. True Leaders in Service, a month-long community service activation, will officially kick-off the first day of April, and culminate with the National 4-H Day of Service on Saturday, April 29. Thousands of 4-H'ers will venture out into their communities to do what 4-H'ers do best: they will lead in service to tackle community challenges and help meet the needs of others.
